Through educational technology courses at the Marlboro School for Graduate and Professional Studies, I studied, analyzed and applied pedagogical best practices and supporting educational technologies needed to successfully execute online, f2f and blended learning environments. I am experienced in the Phoenix Firestorm project, OpenSym, JokaydiaGrid, and Second Life.
As an Adjunct English Faculty at Westchester Community College (WCC) and University Preparation (UP) faculty at Education First (EF), I have a demonstrated record of teaching excellence and a deep commitment to student success and service to both institutions.
In my position as a University Preparation facilitator, I conceived, designed and developed multiple portfolios of face-to-face, online and blended curricula across a variety of disciplines at the University Preparation Program at EF – Education First.
At the University Preparation Program, I successfully designed, implemented and taught 21st Century courses which focused on educational technology literacy, assessments, activity paths, learning objectives and content for each new course. I achieved a 100% paper-free learning environment with excellent student buy-in through collaborative online tools. I believe that collaboration is a 21st Century skill of increasing importance and one that should be used throughout the learning process. Rubrics for collaborating using electronic tools for sharing, editing and uploading materials were especially successful in creating an active, engaged and creative online environment.

MY LATEST RESEARCH
Experiential Technology “XTech” is technology that directly influences the human experience. Creating Experiential Learning Spaces will prove essential to preparing students for the industries of the future.
Strategies for successful online learning design are fourfold: Ask students to respond. Take advantage of automaticity. Assess cognitive load. Discourage divided attention. Therefore, important concepts in scaffolding online courses and delivering in-class modules according to Miller (Minds Online) "include repetition, organizing new language, summarizing meaning, guessing the meaning from context, and using imagery for memorization.”
